Naturalization Exam Preparation Mobile App

The New York State Office for New Americans has partnered with the Immigrants Advocates Network to offer a U.S. Naturalization Exam preparation mobile phone application. The “app” was designed to help individuals learn about their eligibility for naturalization, understand the naturalization process, find legal help, and prepare for the English and civics tests. It includes the following features:

  • Learn About Naturalization: An overview of all of the requirements for citizenship through naturalization.Citizen Application

  • Language Waiver Calculator: Determine whether you are eligible for a waiver of the English language requirement for naturalization or a simplified civics test.

  • Physical Presence Calculator: A calculator to help you record all of your trips abroad and determine whether you meet the physical and continuous presence requirements for naturalization.

  • Naturalization Test Study Tools: A complete set of the 100 questions on the civics and history test, as well as audio-enabled study tools to help you practice reading and writing in English.

  • Find Legal Help: A searchable directory of free or low-cost nonprofit naturalization application support providers in the United States.

  • Document and Information Checklist: A customizable checklist of documents and information that you need to prepare to apply for naturalization.

  • Savings Calculator: A calculator to help you determine how much you need to save per week or per month for the naturalization application fee.

It was developed by the Immigrants Advocates Network and Pro Bono.Net and funded by the Knight Foundation and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
